Christian Anderson is a host and actor who has worked extensively on network television, film, and theater. Originally from the greatest city on earth, Chicago, Christian grew up around a vibrant theater scene that would eventually become his playground as an actor and director. Soon after receiving a BFA in Acting from University of Illinois, he traveled the country performing with various Shakespearean festivals, including the Tony Award winning season of The Utah Shakespearean Festival. The westward travel brought him to LA, where he has been working steadily in TV, appearing in such shows as Castle, Melissa & Joey, iCarly, Young and the Restless, The Defenders and Will & Grace. Christian has also honed his skills at hosting, when he accepted a contract as a national on-air host at HSN. He quickly became known as "The Jack of All Trades Host" where he hosted an eclectic group of shows from “NFL Gear” to “Let’s Cook,” to “Outdoor Living.” He became an Accredited Jewelry Professional through the GIA and hosted “Absolute Jewelry,” “Pearls, Pearls, Pearls,” and “Adventures in Gold.”
Upon returning to LA, Christian shot the pilot episode of Gorgeous on Sunset, a talk show that showcases the latest designers in Hollywood and logged six episodes of Entertainment on Demand for various CW affiliates. However, his passion for relationships was sparked when he was asked by relationship expert Marni Batista to co-host her web series, "The Dating Den" for her coaching program “Dating with Dignity.” He quickly began to engage in work beyond the show, speaking at seminars, hosting tele-classes, and eventually coaching women one-on-one. He was asked to co-host the radio show “The Bachelor Pad” and made several appearances on the well followed “The Male Room,” as a relationship correspondent. He recently started his own coaching program "Let's Talk Dating," where he uses both traditional and unorthodox methods to help women and men get out of their own way to attract a healthy relationship.
In his free time, Christian is work-shopping a self written one man show called “Jesus Was Not A Doorman” about a good boy desperately trying not to go bad as he works in the LA night club industry. He also organizes and plans charitable events for various organizations, including Save Darfur, Enough!, LA Food Bank, and LA Children's Hospital.
"Anderson...is so comfortable in his own body and so natural an actor that he...
doesn't have to grow wide-eyed or weird when he encounters the truth of the situtation.
Instead...takes it all in and reacts as calmly as possible given the circumstances."
